Automated Storage and Retrieval systems in Laboratories Market: Consumption, Demand, Competitor and Forecast 2016 – 2021

Automated Storage and Retrieval systems Market in Laboratories Segmented by field of Application and Forecast to 2020

PUNE, INDIA, September 19, 2016 / -- The emergence of robotics has transformed the typical workday for scientists around the world. With the advent of automation techniques scientists are now able to set up, run, and analyze the results of experiments in a fraction of the time they needed in the past. In today's world, pulling maximum efficiency out of every department, including the R&D labs, is a major issue.

Automation of routine laboratory procedures, by the use of dedicated work stations and software to program instruments, allows associate scientists and technicians to think creatively about the implications of their experiments and to design effective follow-up projects or develop alternative approaches to their work instead of spending their days repeating tedious tasks.

Apart from reducing mundane tasks, the market for laboratory automation is also driven by the need for consistency in quality. Because, the cost of an error is very high, in a scientific paper or developing a drug. Even fairly low error rates can have a profound impact on the conclusions you make downstream.

It is believed that taking out human element helps in achieving more consistency. Great advances have been made in the molding of plastics that has reduced the volumes of reagents used and enabled handling of smaller liquid volumes easy. These advancements has worked in favour of the development of Micro and Nano-litre plates to fit in with the automated liquid handling equipment.

Validation and data quality play a major role in modern life science. Legal validation, patents, and clinical testing have become crucial issues. Automation enables a much higher reproducibility and better documentation of data. This allows the production of more data points with great ease. It also ensures the safety of personnel in the presence of infectious or potentially hazardous material.

Automation is used in a wide variety of life science applications ranging from Proteomics to Systems biology. Automation is a dominant feature in the diagnostics market followed by the discovery and research labs. In clinical diagnostics, where profits are based on the number of samples, high throughput is the core driving factor. Total automation is generally preferred in such labs and manufacturing setups. Research labs and academic institutions are generally opting for modular automation wherein they reduce the human intervention in tedious and repetitive tasks.
